Norton Healthcare is joining Goodwill industries of Kentucky’s “opportunity campus” at 28th Street and W. Broadway, part of a $100 million investment in western Louisville.
The two Kentucky Chamber Board Members announced Wednesday the site would include Goodwill’s headquarters and other local social service agencies and a $70 million Norton hospital. Norton plans to invest $7 million to buy land for the hospital, and back the services at the site.
Amy Luttrell, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Kentucky Inc., said the campus will be ready by 2023 to assist those “who are seeking a better life, but have not been afforded those opportunities.”
The partnership, the first of its kind in the state, will rival any other in Kentucky.
“Norton healthcare believes that the community cannot live their best lives without access to affordable healthcare. West Louisville has some of the highest instances of cancer, heart disease and stroke. Unfortunately, an individual’s zip code has become a major factor in their access to healthcare; not anymore,” Norton Healthcare CEO Russell Cox said Wednesday.
